Marriage

Couples who wish to get married in our parish are advised to book the Church as soon as possible to secure a date. This should be done in person rather than by phone or e-mail.

If you live in the parish but are getting married in another parish it is still necessary to contact the parish priest and make an appointment to have your Pre-Nuptial Enquiry papers filled in. Before doing this, please arrange to get a recent copy of your baptism and confirmation certificates and a letter of freedom from your home parish to state that you are free to marry in the Catholic Church.

It is also necessary to register your marriage with the civil authorities by contacting the registry office. The registry office for the Dublin area is based in Joyce House, Lombard Street. Telephone: 01 6354000.

If you are getting married outside of Ireland you will need to contact the department of Foreign Affairs.
